18F-FSPG PET/CT in Diagnosing Early Lung Cancer in Patients With Lung Nodules

Trial ID or NCT#



recruiting iconRECRUITING


This phase II trial studies how well 18F-FSPG positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) work in diagnosing early lung cancer in patients with lung nodules. PET imaging with an imaging agent called 18F-FDG is often used in combination with a PET/CT scanner to evaluate cancers. Giving 18F-FSPG before a PET/CT scan may work better in helping researchers diagnose early lung cancer in patients with lung nodules.
